The Rev. Jesse Baker, pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Hardwick, MN, joins the Rev. Dr. Phil Booe to study Exodus 13.
God has spared the first born of the Hebrews from the 10th and final plague and, in return, he now charges that every person and animal to first open the womb are to be consecrated to him. He ratifies the annual feast of Unleavened bread, which connects the people to the Passover. God then leads the people in pillars of cloud and fire across the wilderness, but why is he taking them the long way to the promised land?
It’s the true story of God reaching down into history and, through an unlikely prophet, redeeming his chosen people from slavery. It’s the story of Exodus, but it’s also the story of us all. How through Christ, God has liberated us from sin, death, and the Devil. Don’t miss this chapter-by-chapter study of the Book of Exodus on Thy Strong Word.
